, jonas max ferris and tracy byrnes, from new partners, democratic consultant taylor west. welcome to everybody. tracy, why change anything? if the uninsured can go to the emergency room right now, why put this provision in the bill? >> i don't know because one, they're not setting enough money aside to cover these people. they said about 5 billion dollars aside for this. what it is, you first have to get turned down by an insurance agency and then have to wait six months if you're high risk, six months, unfortunately, that could be a matter of life or death so we're asking these people are we purposely trying to get rid of them. i'm not really sure, but we're asking them to put their lives on the line for a system that's totally messed up to begin with, this new proposal and wait to get in so-called wonderful coverage. and 2013, they'll get coverage without anything, but this whole notion that one, there's not enough money to cover them and two, they have to wait for anything is ludicrous. >> taylor, four years to a cancer patient is a long time and the american cancer society act
